HONOLULU, May 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Territorial Bancorp Inc., (Nasdaq:TBNK) (the "Company"), headquartered in Honolulu, Hawaii, the holding company parent of Territorial Savings Bank, announced net income of $3.6 million or $0.37 per basic and $0.36 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2013, compared to $3.5 million or $0.35 per basic and $0.34 per diluted share for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase in earnings for the first quarter was primarily due to an increase in gain on sale of investment securities and higher mortgage loan production which increased interest income and generated greater gains on sales of loans. The Company also announced that the Board of Directors increased its quarterly cash dividend to $0.13 per share. The dividend is expected to be paid on May 29, 2013 to stockholders of record as of May 15, 2013.

Allan Kitagawa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Hawaii's economy has improved over the past year. The growth in the visitor industry and the start of new construction projects has kept the state's unemployment rate low. We face challenges in 2013 related to the impact sequestration could have on Hawaii's economy. We have seen good growth in our loan portfolio during the first quarter. Our emphasis is on producing mortgage loans with good credit quality and increasing the size of our loan portfolio. We continue to strive for improved shareholder returns through our stock repurchase program and payment of dividends. I am pleased to announce that because of our strong performance we will be increasing our quarterly dividend from $0.12 to $0.13 per share."

Interest Income

For the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, net interest income was $12.2 million and $13.1 million, respectively. The decrease in net interest income was due to a $1.7 million decrease in interest and dividend income which was partially offset by an $878,000 decrease in interest expense. Total interest and dividend income was $13.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The decrease in interest and dividend income occurred primarily due to a decline in interest earned on investment securities which totaled $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $6.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. This decrease resulted from repayments on higher yielding mortgage-backed securities and the addition of securities with lower yields to the investment portfolio. This decrease was offset by an increase of $215,000 in interest earned on loans and other investments which occurred primarily due to the growth in the mortgage loan portfolio.

Interest Expense and Provision for Loan Losses

Total interest expense decreased to $1.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $2.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The decrease in interest expense was primarily due to a $450,000 reduction of interest expense on deposits and a $427,000 reduction of interest expense on securities sold under agreements to repurchase. Provision for loan losses decreased to $18,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $84,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. 

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $2.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 compared to $1.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase in noninterest income was primarily due to a $760,000 increase in gain on sale of investment securities and a $204,000 increase in gain on sale of loans.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense increased to $8.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to $8.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. The increase in noninterest expense was primarily due to higher salary and employee benefit expense and equipment expense, but was offset by reductions in occupancy and other general and administrative expenses.

Assets and Equity

Total assets decreased to $1.566 billion at March 31, 2013 from $1.575 billion at December 31, 2012. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $153.1 million at March 31, 2013 from $182.8 million at December 31, 2012. Investment securities held to maturity increased to $555.7 million as of March 31, 2013 from $554.7 million at December 31, 2012 as new securities purchased exceeded the amount of repayments and sales. Loans receivable grew to $793.7 million at March 31, 2013 from $774.9 million at December 31, 2012 due to an increase in residential mortgage loan originations. The growth in loans receivable was funded by cash and cash equivalents. Deposits decreased to $1.237 billion at March 31, 2013 from $1.238 billion at December 31, 2012. Total stockholders' equity decreased to $218.9 million at March 31, 2013 from $219.0 million at December 31, 2012. The slight decrease in stockholders' equity was primarily due to the cost of shares repurchased under the Company's stock buyback program and dividend payments.  The Board of Directors has authorized three stock buyback programs to date. Through March 31, 2013, the Company has repurchased 1,835,331 shares, compared to 1,684,171 shares as of December 31, 2012.

Asset Quality

Total delinquent loans 90 days or more past due and not accruing totaled $2.2 million (8 loans) at March 31, 2013, compared to $2.0 million (8 loans) at December 31, 2012.  Non-performing assets totaled $5.1 million at March 31, 2013 compared to $4.4 million at December 31, 2012. The ratio of non-performing assets to total assets of 0.33% at March 31, 2013 remains one of the lowest in the country. The allowance for loan losses at March 31, 2013 was $1.7 million and represented 0.21% of total loans. At December 31, 2012, the allowance for loan losses was $1.7 million and represented 0.22% of total loans.
